pacificsweet version ingles

Pacific Sweet is a group of growers based in Tecoman Colima and they produce many tropical agricultural products. 

Tecoman is about 35 miles from the port of Manzanillo and is connected both by rail and an excellent 4 lane toll highway. 

Manzanillo is the closest  Mexican Pacific Coast container port to Canada and the USA that can supply most fresh tropical produce annually. 

In addition to the Pacific Sweet groups local orchards and farms in Colima, they can access product from Jalisco, Michoacán and Guerrero. The group has several modern packing facilities. 

This group of growers would like to establish ongoing annual relationships directly with retail food markets in the USA and Canada. 

International Market Resources Inc. will assist in marketing and sales as well as post harvest handling and transportation logistics. 

We also supply financing to the group when needed.

 I'm familiar with the Costa Rica pineapples and agree that it is an excellent variety. 

We have the same variety and the fruit is a little bigger and in my opinion a little bit better. 

We are also about half the distance to market and can get it to you sooner and cheaper.

 We have developed cooling and packaging techniques that give us a longer shelf life and better economics. 

We assure you that you will be dealing directly with the growers and we guarantee quality and reliability. 

The best way for you to confirm our claims is by visiting the facilities and orchards in Colima. 

Please let us know what else you need and we will provide it to you.

While "Flavor" is very subjective, and each country that grows mangoes is very nationalistic, these are the mango varieties that are the most sought after around the world because of sweetnesss (Brix) and demand.

The Chaunsa has a Brix rating in the 22 degree level which is unheard of!
Carabao claims to be the sweetest mango in the world and was able to register this in the Guiness book of world records.
Perhaps it is time for a GLOBAL taste test ???

INDIA 2016 : Mango production in state likely to take a hit this year

TNN | May 22, 2016, 12.32 PM IST

Mangaluru: Vagaries of nature is expected to take a toll on the production of King of Fruits - Mango - in Karnataka this year. A combination of failure of pre-monsoon showers at the flowering and growth stage and spike in temperature in mango growing belt of the state is expected to limit the total production of mango to an estimated 12 lakh tonnes in the current season as against 14 lakh tonnes in the last calendar year.

However, the good news for fruit lovers is that this could see price of mangoes across varieties decrease marginally by 2-3%. This is mainly on account of 'import' of the fruit from other mango-growing states in India, said M Kamalakshi Rajanna, chairperson, Karnataka State Mango Development and Marketing Corporation Ltd.

Karnataka is the third largest mango-growing state in India after Uttar Pradesh and Maharashtra.

Mangoes date back 65 million years according to research ...

Experts at the Birbal Sahni Institute of Palaeobotany (BSIP) here have traced the origin of mango to the hills of Meghalaya, India from a 65 million year-old fossil of a mango leaf. 

The earlier fossil records of mango (Mangifera indica) from the Northeast and elsewhere were 25 to 30 million years old. The 'carbonized leaf fossil' from Damalgiri area of Meghalaya hills, believed to be a mango tree from the peninsular India, was found by Dr R. C. Mehrotra, senior scientist, BSIP and his colleagues. 

After careful analysis of the fossil of the mango leaf and leaves of modern plants, the BISP scientist found many of the fossil leaf characters to be similar to mangifera.

An extensive study of the anatomy and morphology of several modern-day species of the genus mangifera with the fossil samples had reinforced the concept that its centre of origin is Northeast India, from where it spread into neighbouring areas, says Dr. Mehrotra. 

The genus is believed to have disseminated into neighb…
